Stone Lanterns & Outside Garden Art for Your Hot Tub Landscape

October 5, 2009

Looking for a Japanese stone lantern or other decorative sculpture for your Hot Spring Spa landscape? Something that would be perfect to contemplate while you’re soaking?  Head straight to the Kyoto Arts & Antiques sale.  Twice a year Jay Gray & his wife, Kyoko, send 5 containers of Japanese antiques from Kyoto to their Seattle warehouse in Georgetown.

The opening day-the first Thursdays of May & October are mad houses. People line up for blocks to see what treasures Jay has discovered (including moi).  Don’t worry if you missed the opening. Jay & his crew put new things out every day as space opens up.

I’ve been going for years-sometimes everyday for the entire run of the show: eleven days.  But, I think I’m over that now. Once will be enough!  Our house has a number of tansu and other treasured decorative items from Japan found over the years at the sale.

I went to the sale this past Friday and was amazed by the selection of stone lanterns & outdoor stone sculptures at terrific prices-perfect for your outdoor Hot Spring Spa garden.  Home delivery  is available. You’ll have to hurry, though to see the treasures, the sale ends Sunday.  See the details for parking and hours at the Kyoto Arts & Antiques website.  If you have any interest in Japanese antiques, you won’t be disappointed.  Tell them Alice from Olympic Hot Tub Company sent you.
